Description R P Herrold 2002-01-18 03:19:48 UTC
The change in the new specfile for update pine-4.44-1.72.0.src.rpm has a couple
of portability problems.

From: Chris Adams <cmadams@hiwaay.net

This is the primary problem I've had.  For example, the RHL 7.2 pine RPM

for n in pine pico pilot; do
    install -c -m 755 -s bin/$n $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/bin/$n

For the errata, someone decided it was "better" to do:

install -m 755 bin/{pine,pico,pilot,rpdump,rpload} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/bin/

Why?  There is no good reason not to use the more portable loop.

And they didn't fix the real problem: the use of /usr/bin instead of
%{_prefix}/bin or even better %{_bindir}. :-)
